I can't think of a more nerve-wracking day watching CNBC, going back to the aftermath of 9-11. What a jittery feeling knowing what we knew overnight about Asian markets -- but cooler heads have apparently prevailed.
We'll talk about the economy tonight -- also about politics -- and last night's turn for the personal in the CNN debate. Tim Russert will be with us to talk politics. We'll also report on diabetes, the troubles in Gaza and more.
I'm off now to do a special report on the network on the day's market trading (Mike Taibbi rode out the day on the trading floor of a Wall Street firm -- that will be interesting to see on the air tonight) and then start compiling the broadcast.
I also want to call your attention to a great piece from Richard Engel in Iraq that will go up on our Nightly News website immediately following the broadcast.
A busy day, and it promises to end with a busy broadcast tonight. We appreciate you being with us.
